So there were some rumors that a song called “Reborn” was going to be Blink 182′s next single but Mark Hoppus (bass/vocals) has denied it on his twitter.

“For the record, Blink 182 is NOT releasing a song called ‘Reborn’ in June.”

Good enough for me. I can’t wait for them to go back on tour.

Brandon Flowers seems to have a knack for talking a lot and annoying people (like when he compared Sam’s Town to Springsteen’s music and called it “one of the best albums in the past twenty years”). Flowers recently spoke to NME.com about his desire for The Killers to be as popular in the US as they are in Britain. His biggest obstacle? The American music fan.

“We’ve been embraced in Britain in a way that I’ll never understand, and it’s such a wonderful thing,” he declared. “But over here [in America], people are still so obsessed with Led Zeppelin and Nirvana, those sorts of bands, that nobody else is allowed [to grow].”

He added: “It’s not just us; there are a lot of great bands that have been held down or confined by the influence of these people that we’ve put up on pedestals. I’m tired of it, you know? I just want to knock them all off! And people don’t like that attitude. It’s almost like they don’t believe that it’s possible that anybody else can be the real deal.

“It doesn’t matter how many great songs we write or how many great shows we play. But we’re slowly chipping away at it. With this last album ['Day And Age'], there’s been a noticeable shift but we’re still nowhere near where we are in Europe.”
